Stonefruit and minerals on the nose along with some funky fresh grassyness. Has a strong fresh squeezed orange juice and characteristic that is rare in wines and is a food pairing gem. Also some tart mango and passionfruit notes. A very slight whiff of flintiness and not the profile I was expecting for what is apparently a silex soil wine, but really strongly flavored, thirst quenching, tasty with a good leesy body and some complexity.
